Shannon Kitchings is a multi-discipline artist working in Southern Ontario. She uses performance, literary arts, and somatic practice to bridge gaps among people who speak different languages, come from different backgrounds, and have different comfort levels performing. For the past five years, Shannon has been facilitating the Conscious Bodies method, developed by Andrea Nann and Dreamwalkers Dance Company, as a way to offer opportunities for community building. Her research in voice and trauma has inspired her to explore the ways everyone, regardless of artistic training or experience, can communicate complex subject matter through the arts. This exploration is founded in embodiment.
